In addition to visiting friends on the road I am eagerly anticipating meeting up with a a handful of friends at various locales. My first visitor was one of the most important people in my life, my Father. He met me on the Canadian side of Glacier National Park in a cute town called Waterton (http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/ab/waterton/index.aspx). We were able to kick around town and have lunch at The Prince of Wales Hotel (http://glacierparkinc.com/prince_of_wales.php) before heading out to Cranbrook, BC. In total we were able to spend three full days together, it was a wonderful treat to have the time with him.
Things have been tough since the loss of my Mom, we have all been heartbroken trying to figure out our footing without this amazing woman in our lives. No one has been more affected than my Father. He dedicated his life to the well being of her and in her final years spent every moment ensuring her needs were cared for and that she had a smile on her face. I am so thankful for the presence of him in our lives, he has been the perfect example to me of true love.
Throughout the years my Dad has also struggled with his weight and he currently is working diligently to gain control of his health. He has adapted a diet of whole food clean eating and exercise. He is an inspiration to me as I travel on my own journey. I couldn’t be more proud of this man.
Today is his birthday and I am so happy to be able to write this post about him. I love you Dad and happy birthday!!
